Psalm 62:2

My soul rests in God alone, from whom comes my salvation.

+++

As St. Paul stated, perhaps quoting poetry, it is in God that “we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

When I am present to this Mystery, simply present in the now, resting in this Unknowable Presence, I am free.

It is from this experience that I know that “there is nothing I lack” (Psalm 23:1).

I am whole and complete.

Doing has nothing to do with it!

It’s about being.

I know that I am known by the Knower of All.

Since God is love (1 John 4:8), I am resting in Love itself.

Some form of meditation such as Centering Prayer is very helpful.

But walks in nature are also a help in experiencing the presence of the Divine Presence, a peace beyond all understanding (Philippians 4:7).

You don’t really have to go anywhere to experience this peace.

For, as Jesus stated, the kingdom of God is among you, also translated as within you (Luke 17:20-21).
